Goodbye, September! And hello, Christmas!
Wait, what happened to Halloween you may ask? I’ve been asking myself that as well as I see everything Fall related pushed to the sale bins and the Christmas holiday crush already starting.
I’m simply not ready for Winter! We haven’t even had our usual San Francisco Summer in September. It’s just been one gray day after another.
On the plus side, this means I’ve been putting my InstantPot to good use, making my low FODMAP chili almost every week. But, still!
Last week, my pal Heather took me to the Foreigner | Def Leppard | Journey concert at AT&T Park. We bundled up and had a great time on the field rocking out to a night of 80s classic hits.
I was underwhelmed by the gluten-free food options available at the park for those of us on the field, however. With the edible garden and its restaurant closed, my gluten-free(ish) food options were a hot dog without a bun and french fries. that came from a fryer in heavy use for batter-coated items. Since I was starving, I opted for the french fries, which were more flaccid than crunchy. Not my best dinner at the Giants ballpark by a long shot.
And it was a good thing we grabbed bottled water when we got our food—the beverage lines took over 30 minutes for our seat-mates to work their way through (we passed). This is why I always pack a snack unless I’m going to an event where outside food and drinks are prohibited. In those cases, however, they really do need to do better when it comes to making gluten-free foods available. And with that, let’s dive into this week’s low FODMAP recipes. Enjoy!
